Hi, my name is Allison Cruz. I have worked as a receptionist for All West Veterinary Hospital for 9 months. My favorite part of this job is greeting the clients and their pets.
I had the pleasure of having my Queensland heeler, Sammy, come in for an office visit to see Dr. Brooke Trey. Sammy loved everybody here, mostly because they gave her love and cookies. During the exam, Dr. Brooke recommended that Sammy have her teeth cleaned in the near future. She showed me the tartar buildup on Sammy’s canine and molar teeth as well as gum inflammation. We scheduled a dental cleaning for the next day.
I brought Sammy in bright eyed and bushy-tailed at 9 o’clock the next morning. Sammy did not get breakfast that morning since she would be put under anesthesia so she was much more bushy-tailed than normal. Dr. Brooke cleaned her teeth in a short amount of time and Sammy woke up without any complications. Her teeth were white and clean again.
Dental care is extremely important for pets. It is never too early to start preventative oral care for your pets! Since Sammy’s visit, I have started giving her C.E.T chews, which help to break off tartar buildup, and I brush her teeth regularly with enzymatic pet toothpaste. We offer these products, along with the T/D Science Diet food that was designed for oral care, in the reception area of the hospital. We look forward to seeing you and your pets at All West soon!
